Guglielmo Scovazzi Associate Professor, Departments of Civil & Environmental Engineering and Mechanical Engineering & Materials Science
Guglielmo Scovazzi received B.S/M.S. in Aerospace Engineering (summa cum laude) from Politecnico di Torino (Italy), in 1998; and M.S. (2002) and Ph.D. (2004) in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University. Before coming to Duke, he was a Senior Member of the Technical Staff in the Computer Science Research Institute at Sandia National Laboratories (Albuquerque, NM), where he received 5 Sandia Awards of Excellence for his work in computational subsurface modeling and computational shock physics.
Dr. Scovazzi’s research interests include finite element and advanced numerical methods for computational fluid and solid mechanics. His research emphasizes accurate computational methods aimed at reducing the overall design/analysis costs in multiphase porous media flows, highly transient compressible and incompressible flows, turbulent flows, and complex geometry systems in solid mechanics.
His current and recent research work was funded by DOE Office of Science, DOE Advanced Scientific Computing Research, ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company (Houston, TX).
He is a member of the Editorial Board of the International Journal on Numerical Methods in Fluids, and a Member of SIAM and the US Association of Computational Mechanics (USACM).
